I’m not crafty as in arts-and-crafts crafty. I’ve had more than my fair share of craft fails, and I can empathize with these funny ones….in truth, I’m probably more of the mean/nasty/deceitful type of crafty. Just keeping it real. But that’s another story.
And this is not a craft, DIY kind of blog….
That said, my girls are crafty, in the best sense of the word. RK received this hat loom for Christmas last year, and both girls loved making hats from baby-sized to adult-sized. They insisted it was super easy. I have a long track record for not being able to do crafts that everyone else calls “super easy,” but I decided to give it a try. I’m pretty sure it’s the only thing I’ve ever made that turned out like the example. Ever. In my whole life.
And it was easy. And I did it in less than 30 minutes (I made the smallest size). And I could do it again. It’s the perfect craft!
The part I was most worried about was “finishing” it….you see, my mother once taught me a chain stitch in crochet. At least, I think that’s what it was called. Well, I made a chain stitch about a mile long. Why, I have no idea. But it was all I could do. She tried to teach me looping it, casting on, perl 2, whatever you call it (maybe those are knitting terms?). Haha, she tried. God bless her. I was a lost cause! Nevertheless, I just had my really long useless chain stitch trailing behind me.
Anyway, finishing the hat was simple, too. This IS actually “super easy,” and the world should know about it! 🙂
The girls have just gotten a similar loom, but this one is for socks. Hopefully this one will have the same wonderful results. Have you tried it?
